Significant advances have been made in the development of maintenance-free batteries during the last few years. Written by an internationally known expert in the field, this book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the theory and practice of the three main types of maintenance-free batteries based on aqueous electrolytes that are in use today. Since publication of the first edition in 1993, the book has been considerably revised and expanded and includes new material on nickel/metal hydride batteries and corrosion of electrodes. Special features of this book include: Describes fundamental features of lead-acid, nickel/cadmium, and nickel/metal hydride battery systems in detail. Relates quantitative electrochemical theory to the design and choice of appropriate batteries for the various applications. Includes numerous examples of applications of maintenance-free batteries - e.g. in the power supply, electronic equipment and telecommunications industries. Gives practical information on the parameters that influence the performance and characteristics of batteries and their behaviour in the field.
